Irmo, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The South Carolina Youth Soccer Association is working to silence rowdy parents during children’s games.

During “Silent September,” parents will be asked not to cheer, jeer or otherwise comment at all SCYSA sponsored league games in the state, at all levels of competition, due to “continuing problems/issues with sideline behaviors on the parent/spectator touchline; and the impact that inappropriate behavior has upon our youth, especially upon youth referees,” according to a statement on the SCYSA website.

Below is the full statement outlining the SCYSA code of conduct for spectators and rules regarding Silent September:

After September, the SCYSA said the league will have additional “Silent Saturday” and “Silent Sunday” events to remind parents and spectators about the codes of conduct.
